Last Monday for Memorial Day we took a little trip to Butterfly Wonderland. I had been once before over a year ago with friends, but Gwen was so little and mostly slept in her wrap (I miss those days!). So I wanted to share the butterfly magic with Gwen and Ryan. It was kind of hard to tell if Gwen liked the butterflies. She definitely liked running around inside the atrium and she liked the little pond with fish so much that she cried and made a scene when I wouldn't let her jump in. Maybe she hated the butterflies, seeing how she nearly killed one.... See, a big one landed on her leg while Ryan was holding her. I scrambled for my camera to get a picture, but Gwen instantly grabbed the butterfly and a couple of pieces of its wing floated to the ground as it lopsidedly flew away. It was so sad! Poor, fragile creature.
It was a pleasant visit, but I'm not sure when will be the next time we'll go. It isn't cheap. As we were driving up to the place, we saw the huge aquarium they're building next door! I don't remember when they'll be opening, but I'm excited to check it out. There's a small aquarium close to us in Tempe, but Gwen and I have definitely exhausted it. I'm interested to find out what this new aquarium has to offer.
